Tender Loving Care (TLC), "the world's first truly interactive DVD movie", was awarded first place in the DVD category at the awards ceremony on November 15, 1997 sponsored by the International Compact Disc Interactive Association (ICDIA) and the newly formed Interactive Digital Media Association (IDMA).
Tender Loving Care was available in at least 3 versions: CD-rom, DVD-Rom and a special DVD edition made for playing on standard DVD video players via your remote controller. This version was usually sold on Music and video stores while the other was intended for software retailers.
Fall 2001: Time for some “What has become of…?” with the stars of Tender Loving Care:
John Hurt: Tender Loving Care’s famous name is still a frequent guest on the big screen. Since his appearance in the interactive movie, Hurt has played in more than a dozen films – few popular successes, though. You can see him in the upcoming production “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”.
Beth Tegarden: The seducing Kathryn of TLC has apparently failed to turn the head of any influential producer. If you want to catch a glimpse of the blonde beauty again, look for some b-videos in your local video store.
Marie Caldare: Seems like Tender Loving Care was the zenith of the career of Marie Caldare (alias Allison Overton), too. Caldare keeps her head above the water with guest roles in TV series such as Star Trek: Voyager or NYPD Blue.
Michael Esposito: It seems that TLC’s male lead has turned his back to acting. To date, Esposito hasn’t appeared in any serious production.
Tender Loving Care features distinguished Hollywood actor John Hurt (Dr. Turner), who is perhaps best known for his performance in David Lynch's 1980 film "The Elephant Man," in which he played the horribly deformed John Merrick.
